(London Daily Mail) They are playing “gay” lovers in the latest Liberace biopic and official pictures reveal just how far Michael Douglas and co-star Matt Damon have changed their appearance to star in the film.

In the first official shot of the pair in character Douglas looks almost unrecognisable as Liberace while Damon, who plays Scott Thorson, the singer’s young live-in love, looks sculpted in heavy make-up.

The official picture, on Entertainment Weekly, accompanies a piece where both actors reveal filming the numerous sex scenes was always ‘awkward.’
